IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 — /PRNewswire/ — Digital Video Enterprises, Inc. (DVE) announced today it has launched the DVE Immersion Room, the first-of-its kind Holographic Presentation Room, powered by Microsoft®.  Microsoft Windows® is now seen floating in the middle of the room and people are able to interact with video objects suspended in mid-air.  Other apps, such as PowerPoint® and Lync®, are now functioning in augmented reality mode with 3D objects filling the expanse of the room with no bulky glasses to wear.  Microsoft Kinect® enables Minority Report-like interaction combined with DVE’s patented holographic environment.  The total solution is now being offered for a new generation of executive briefing centers, boardrooms, telepresence suites, and collaboration environments.

DVE has also created a new generation of real telepresence, that delivers true eye contact to conference rooms and desktop systems, and is driven by the Lync desktop client.  This revolutionary concept eliminates the need for legacy videoconference and telepresence systems without forcing a change in underlying network infrastructureWhen combined with DVE’s patented technology, Lync delivers HD images of life-size people sitting across the table.

The DVE telepresence solution solves the eye contact problem that vexes the rest of the industry.  With our patented process of mounting the camera behind and aimed through the LED image, DVE delivers what telepresence customers have been searching for- perfect eye contact and a real communication experience.  According to Jeff Machtig, Co-Founder of DVE, ” We have predicted that software based conferencing will transform enterprise communication and now we are able to power the best telepresence experience in the world from a Windows PC, notebook, and even a Surface Pro tablet.”

DVE is currently conducting demonstrations of all its products for clients around the globe at DVE’s showrooms.  The DVE Silhouette™ for the desktop conceals a camera behind the screen image, enabling perfect eye contact.  No more looking down while conferencing.  DVE’s Huddle Room 70™ for business meeting rooms creates the true sensation of people sitting just on the other side of the table with perfect eye contact.  The DVE Immersion Room™ creates amazing life-size holographic people walking about the room and has won the Frost and Sullivan Product of the Year Award.  The room fully incorporates Microsoft Windows and has tiles floating in open air and controlled by Kinect.

    It is stuff like this that MS needs to present to users to let them say, wow! In comedy you have the punch line. MS’ tech needs to have punch when compared to the competition. If MS can wow users with Metro Office like it does with that presentation above, it can turn things around in the consumer and business markets.

    I believe MS should have stipulated that Windows 8 should only be used on touch screen devices. A main reason for this, is that Windows 8 has a lot more innovative punch on touchscreens than it does on non-touchscreens; and Windows 8 sorely needs that innovative punch to counter the competition in the consumer market, and to convince businesses to upgrade to the new OS. Coupling Windows 8 with non-touchscreen PCs, dilutes its innovation impact, and causes a lot of confusion. I believe trying to cut costs by allowing the above has done considerable harm. I believe it would have been better that MS said to OEMs, if you want Windows on non-touch screen devices, use Windows 7, otherwise use Windows 8 – only for touchscreen devices.

    I’ve hoped for years after using Skype/facetime on my phone that someone would produce a screen with a camera placed BEHIND it so you don’t look bloody stupid and uncomfortable when talking and looking at them. This is what Nokia need to do next, to jump ahead of the Apples & Nokias.

    Holographic Telepresence was first introduced to the Public in a early format during Obama campaign in 2008 in CNN. But DVE I believe went beyond and showed this immersive solution can be mature and used in Enterprise Communications . I cannot wait to watch a live demo with it.
